The russians have developed a targeted jammer for drones.

We really shouldn't rely on the "smart soldier" concept too much.

However, the counter argument made the last time was that such jammers would simply become targets.

I think microwave might get around this limitation.

Yes, a "Shrike"-missile-(homes in on 'signature/signal' for whatever this were 'attuned' upon in regards for that. "Wild Weasels" also, would employ "electronic counter-counter measures" as well, depending upon 'sources'.

This isn't a jammer. It looks like it's using EM radiation to actually destroy the electronics. It can probably be countered with shielding or radiation hardening, which of course adds weight and bulk.

Okay. I keyed on the phrase "Using the ultra-high frequency waves the weapon can completely disable aircraft communications, resulting in loss of control." But I can see it might just be designed to burn the entire thing out.

As a beam weapon, it might not be easy to target it since it might be essentially invisible outside of the beam.

'Concocted Composites' might entail LIGHT/RAY-diffusing feature, and strap on some "eggs" why not, for having them being 'cooked' during that! robot

surprise -"Strain~B-O-R-M-!" Take 'microwave oven'-doors and SLAPDASH them onto these, hey, USE them free 'magnet-ads' to apply additional 'contrameasurement'.
"*F*N* 'magnet'-"Shrike" does HOW 'work'?"
